To Boldly Flee

I left behind,And rightly so,

The sideways glances

Of backwards folks.

My forward thinking 

Reversed my fortunes.

Here I stand, 

There’s no return.

I stood up for myself,

No longer downcast.

Under control,

And above reproach,

I left my past behind;

And after that

I stood before the exalted

On the morrow

And off I flew

Into the night

And out of sight.
